Scott Brown. Otherwise, he'd have to debate her on actual issues and she'd kick his ass.

ELIZABETH WARREN FOR US SENATE!!!!

None of this matters.

The smoking gun is the extra paycheck money.

Americans don't stand for extra paycheck money.

A Massachusetts genealogist said he uncovered evidence that Warren's great-great-great grandmother had listed herself as Cherokee in an 1894 document. That would make Warren a 1/32nd American Indian.

She would be 1/32 American Indian only if the great-great-great grandmother was full-blooded. Maybe she was only half, or a quarter. What if the propensity to exaggerate American Indian heritage runs in the family, and the great-great-great grandmother was only 1/32nd American Indian herself. That would make Warren only 1/1024 American Indian. That's not much. She shouldn't be going around pretending to be an Indian when that's all she's got.

She's the same amount of Native American as the head of the farkin' Cherokee nation. Plus, she's not the one going around pretending to be an indian, you moron. Idiots like you are the ones pretending she's an Indian, and then you're whining that she's not.

She listed herself as a white. Welcome to the article.

Also, just to be clear the genealogist who put forth the 132nd claim is just a genealogist asked by a newspaper to look into the records. He is not affiliated with the Warren campaign.

For the 2.8 billionth time...the right does not care about facts. Just talking points.

Now THAT is a deep thought...

90% of what Republican's are saying these days turns out to be hyperbole or complete intentional lies.

If your only course of action to get people to believe in your argument is through lies and manipulation....you need to just shut the fark up.
 
2012-05-11 11:25:43 AM  
It's so odd that conservatives have to lie to get their point across. It's almost as if the truth doesn't fit in with their political philosophy.
 
2012-05-11 11:25:51 AM  
I would wager to guess that 30 percent of Americans have Native American heritage.
 
2012-05-11 11:26:20 AM  
My father was Cherokee. I never claim it on applications for anything.
Why take something I don't need when those rights can be extended to full blooded Native Americans?

She should really start doing what the GOP wants to admonish. It is very difficult to continually accuse someone of doing something that they aren't, in fact, doing.

None of which matters because she checked "White" instead of "Native American" on her form.

The chief of the Cherokee tribe is 1/32nd Cherokee. Duly elected.

Should he step down because you think it is wrong?

I think it is because of the mean metal strap-ons they all use. That is why the husbands of strong liberal women walk that way.

Remember when Elizabeth Warren was accused of lying about her ethnicity to get special treatment? Turns out that not only is she there is some indication she might be 1/32 part Cherokee, but she also never even claimed that on admission forms or employment applications to Texas.

FTFY.

Vodka Zombie: She's the same amount of Native American as the head of the farkin' Cherokee nation.


There is a clue she might be. Last article about the record didn't say it verified it.

And the head of the cherokee nation has a cultural connection to cherokees that goes beyond a picture of a half indian great-grandfather that has been passed through the family.
